    RodgeA , hello and welcome to our 'Hood' . Stay around and become part of the 'Familia; .\


    Your tank must look like this ;[​IMG]  , I would use it as a fuel tank ( jmho) , and find something less dangerous to work with...like a 24" pipe about 6' long. Easier to configure.

    [​IMG]  these can be found at a 'Scrap Yard' for pennies on the dollar price...

    Then flat cold rolled metal can be  found there too and you're on your way.

    [​IMG]  ,. Get you calculator data here on our forum . Needless to say you'll have a pack of Welders decend on you in just a short... We love to suggest ideas.

    have fun , hold on to your 'Bloomers" and  . . .
